It happened early Friday morning, and some weren’t happy about it.
A vote occurred in the state Senate early this morning to exempt retired law enforcement officials from a restriction under the New York SAFE Act.
The retired officers would not be required to follow ammunition restrictions under the measure, which has now passed through both chambers of the state legislature.
It’s unclear whether the Governor will sign off on the idea.
14 senators voted no on the proposal, citing their continued desire to see the SAFE Act repealed, and their concern about the entire process.
Three local senators, Michael Nozzolio, Thomas O’Mara and James Seward, all voted no.
